Uncoveting?



I got nothing.
Nada
Zip.
In fact, when I stroll through the mall, I only gaze at the clothing and barely pay attention to the shoes.
Gasp.
This is working well with my "don't want to buy any more clothes" 2015 goal.  I will make an exception when it's out of necessity, like when my two pairs of jeans both tore during the same week. This was also during the holidays and hopefully unrelated to all the food, but rather because they had been well used and in my closet for 3 years.

So my coveting post shall be a little different.  I'm really focused on my house right now and with Kyla, Rob and their kidlets moving out, its almost like I'm moving back into my house.  There is so much organizing to do.

I'm therefore taking it one room at a time and focusing on the media room, which is the only room that doesn't have anything hanging on the walls.

Here is some of inspiration:



Contemporary Home Theater by Des Plaines Schools and Organizations National Association of the Remodeling Industry

Then I went to find some pictures of the media room and I don't even really have any that show it's simpleness.  This is best I have....

So instead I'll let you know that I'm currently working really hard on creating a room that is cozy and practical and makes visual sense.
Stay tuned for a reveal in many, many moons from now.

In the meantime, c
heck out these talented bloggers to see what they came up with for today's topic and make sure you link your blog up if you put something together for this!

  4. Doesn't it feel kinda good to not be looking for clothes for a change? My husband keeps asking me if I want to go shopping and I really don't. I am sure when spring arrives, that will change but right now I am content. Can't wait to see the new and improved media room. Love your coveting graphic, too!!

Sunshine inspired fashion

Today I'm showing you the first outfit I got on my trip to Scotland/England and it just happens to be in one of my favourite colours....yes, yellow.  I also put together some of my fave yellow picks on the interwebs for you in the above link.

I have posted a few of my fave yellow pieces before like the one with the blazer  or the one with the yellow shoes and jacket and then there is also this bag that I got in Vegas last year that always makes me swoon....


Anyway, I'm rambling....today's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it. Muahahahahha...here's sneak peak.

A blogger meet up in Toronto

It was like a weekend long blind date...... e-Harmony but for friends..... Possibly one of the craziest things I've done..... But I spent the weekend with 10 other women whom I met online. Well, except for my real life bestie on the far right. We have a group of 14 bloggers who have been collabing since the spring of 2014 and what first was simple blog fun has quickly become a sisterhood.   Last year we met in Vegas, this year we settled for Toronto and had 11 members.
Trip highlights include a bus trip with wine and Niagara Falls, a walking tour of downtown Toronto, plenty of great meals, a shopping adventure and rooftop hot tubs at night.  I could go into the details, but for me, the actual trip to Toronto wasn't why I went...the Jays weren't even playing. What brings me the most joy about this trip is the fact that women from all walks of life, all ages (we had 30, 40 and 50 somethings) with a gamut of different interests took a leap of faith and traveled to meet women…

London 1

Sunday/Monday was a blur.   It went from cruising around Toronto (that means shopping) with the little group of Blended Bloggers that were left over to heading to the airport to meet Dan and the kids then to an overnight flight to Dublin and then another 2ish hour flight to London.  At least the kids slept an hour or two, but I couldn't do it.   Currently in zombie mode.   When we got to our hotel (MalMaison Charterhouse Square) we had to nap. Well I had to anyway before I started losing it.   After an hour long family nap, Dan headed to work and I decided to take the kids out on an adventure in the neighbourhood.  We're only 850 metres from St. Paul's Cathedral and I hadn't visited it last time I was here so it was an easy pick. First I had to devise a plan to keep them engaged and because Pokemon is all they ever want, it was an easy bait.  The deal was that if they came and learned something with me, they got to have some Pokemon time in the area. It worked like a …
